Tooth Fairy

We had a major milestone in our house!  My son lost his first tooth :)

It was actually a really traumatic experience.  He was nervous to lose his first tooth, so he was guarding that sucker.  He would not let anyone near it and tried his best not to wiggle it.  Needless to say, his tooth got knocked out by an accidental football hit to the face by one of his friends.  Then, he thought that he swallowed his tooth!

My husband said that he could hear the screams in our front yard, through the closed front door.

We got him patched up and calmed down and managed to write a note to the tooth fairy.  Somehow, his lost tooth was found and placed in our special wish box.  Everything ended up being special and oh, so sweet.

Even better, was his face when he ran downstairs with his money and his letter from the tooth fairy!  I love it :)  Such a great start to the morning!!!


Now, I would like to introduce some more of the wonderful teachers who are donating to the big giveaway on Monday 1/13/14.
 The first teacher that I would like to introduce is Jennifer Drake.  I have had the pleasure of using many of her resources and they ROCK!  Her resources are right up my alley.  They are differentiated and FUN!!  She is offering a wonderful set of winter CVC worksheets for the giveaway.
If you are learning about the seasons, you do not want to miss KB3Teach's Science Season Sort!  Easy for students to complete and aids them in developing their fine motor skills.
This time of year, a lot of us are teaching long vowels.  If you need anchor charts for short and long vowels, look no further than Common Core Connection.  She's donated a set of wonderful anchor charts for each vowel.
One more for today!  If you teach 3rd grade, you do not want to miss this!  Jamie Sears from "The Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher" has wonderful product "3rd Grade Language Flaps for Interactive Notebooks".  These flaps are a wonderful resource to use in your interactive notebooks! Students glue the flaps in their journal. They can write a definition on one side of the flap and examples on the other side.  Each flap includes a title, an I Can statement and the 3rd Grade Common Core Standard.
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! 
If you get a chance, take a look at these wonderful products and stores :)


  1. WOW- a moment of fame! Thanks for the shout-out Laura! Your products are equally as wonderful! Can't wait for the giveaway!

  2. Aww. That is so cute! Kids are really special. I especially love the look on their faces when they receive their first gift from the tooth fairy. Haha!  It sounds like quite a memorable experience for your son to lose his first tooth. I can only imagine his reaction the next morning. Haha!

  3. Awww! Such fond memories. I can only imagine how your son must have felt when he thought he swallowed his tooth. Kids who are afraid of having their teeth pulled can indeed be quite a handful, don’t they? But don’t worry because they won’t be as scared when they grow up. Keep us posted! :D

  4. You truly have a knack for turning not-so-good moments into special ones! Hopefully, that first tooth-loss experience didn’t leave him traumatized for the next. Well, that’s obviously not the case, thanks to the sweet tooth fairy that saved the day. Cheers!
